Managing People: New MOOC Announced
Performance reviews, competence management, 360 degree feedback: employee development is no longer the exclusive ambit of human resources. In today’s workplace, staff development needs to be an essential component of any director or manager’s professional toolkit.
To help you acquire the right tools to manage your people and develop their talent, IESE is launching a new Massive Open Online Course (MOOC). The course, which will be delivered in Spanish (with English subtitles), begins on April 27 and is free to join.
One of the principal aims of the new MOOC is to demonstrate that in managing people there can be no neutral ground; employees are either managed well, or they are managed badly.
The course will be divided into five sessions – one session per week – and will cover a broad range of topics, including recruitment and selection, employee appraisals and competence management.
Sessions will feature short videos in which hiring managers share their experience and expertise, and the case method will be used to promote debate and exchange. Participants will also have access to an online discussion forum.
The final element of the course requires participants to make an analysis of the HR policies of a company of their choice, deploying the ideas and concepts they have learnt.
The course will be taught by Professor Guido Stein, Associate Professor of Managing People in Organizations and Analysis of Business Problems at IESE.
